Shot Tower, Melbourne

0807 Shot Tower, Melbourne

What better to have as a centrepiece in your city-centre shopping centre than a shot tower? This is at Melbourne Central, and is a very striking piece of preservation/re-use. I had seen it before, but on arriving at the atrium had one of those, aha, it's a good idea, moments. It's an interesting exercise in different architectural geometries side by side, the glass cone and the brick tower.

Strangely like some Rapunzel tower, trapped in an iron web.
Will she ever be rescued??
